Language Bug New Year’s Resolutions
I’ve been on an unexpected hiatus for the past few weeks. The details of which aren’t incredibly interesting, so I’ll leave it at that.
The good news is though, that Language Bug has some amazing things planned for 2015.
Language Learning New Year’s Resolutions
I tend to think of New Year’s Resolutions as an unhelpful term. A resolution can be vague; is it a goal, or a habit? A do or a don’t?
As such, I tend to think in terms of habits and goals.
For instance, your goal might be to learn Chinese, or get better at your French or Spanish.
That’s nothing without building a habit, though.
A habit is something like, “I will spend ten minutes a day memorizing vocabulary.”
If you get the two confused, then you will be spinning your wheels and yet not going anywhere.
People tend to overestimate what they can do in the short term and underestimate what they can do in the long term.
Becoming fluent in one month is unlikely. Going up a level from A2 to B1 in two months is achievable but tough. You want to be in that grey area where it’s possible but not easy.
My Language Learning Goals 2014
I’m currently re-learning Spanish and French. I aim to get them to a higher level than they have been until now. Then I will learn similar languages later in 2015. I will finish the year by brushing up on my Mandarin and Russian in a similar way to how I’m approaching French and Spanish now.
Goals for Language Bug
2014 was the founding year of Language Bug. I hit one hundred posts earlier in December. My aim is to hit two hundred this year.
I’m going to start using the various social media accounts I set up but never got into.
I hope to triple traffic by the end of the year.
I have planned out a regular posting schedule. I will stick to it.
That’s all from me. Drop in your New Year’s resolutions, and have a great time celebrating!
